Position the mechanism so that it cannot be circumvented. 5. Permission-based - default is no access. List items to be accessed. 6. Separation of privilege - access should depend on more than one condition, in case one is defeated. 7. Least common mechanism - avoid shared objects, which may be covert channels. 8. Easy to use - If hard to use, users will circumvent it. Security features of ordinary OS: 1. User authentication - userid must be unique; id accurate - password 2.
